The HyperCaster includes an integrated, searchable, web-based Program Guide to which you can link from or embed in your site without having to re-enter program information. You can link the Program Guide to your website or export it to a spreadsheet or text file.
Making the Program Guide Available on your Website
1. Open the dedicated web Program Guide port 50001 for secure HTTPS (available as of releases 6.3 and later) on your router or firewall to the HyperCaster internally. Alternatively forward an available external port to the HyperCaster port 50001 internally. If port 50001 cannot be used, dedicated port 50000 for insecure may be used. You can also use port 443 for secure HTTP (available as of release 6.3) or port 80 for insecure HTTP, however ports 443 and 80 also expose the entire web interface, whereas ports 50001 and 50000 expose only the website program guide so is more secure. Consult your IT department for how to do this properly at your installation.
2. Link to the web site program guide from your website. The format for the link is
where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the public IP address that routes to the designated port on the HyperCaster, and # is the channel id, such as “1” for output channel 1, “2” for output channel 2, etc… on a multi-channel server.
Or you can embed the program guide using HTML embedding. For the embedded guide to be responsive, you must be on release 6.3 or later, and your site itself must be responsive.
3. Regularly set the metadata for your content and events so the Program Guide will show useful information.
Users can select the day they want to view your schedule using the Calendar Picker. The results show the program start times, the program names, and the next air date for each program.
Users can also search the Program Guide by keyword to find specific air times of their favorite shows.
Copying the Program Guide to a Text File
1. Go to the program guide page at
or a single-channel system or
for a multi-channel system
where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the public IP address that routes port 80 to the Digital Broadcaster and # is the channel id, such as “1” for output channel 1, “2” for output channel 2, etc… on a multi-channel server.
2. Highlight and copy the text you want.
3. Open a simple text editor such as NotePad, WordPad, or TextEdit and paste the text into a blank file.
4. If you need the schedule for more dates, use the calendar picker at the left to display another date and repeat Steps 2 – 3.
5. Rename and save the file to a local drive or device.
